from press release

VILLANOVA, Pa. - After an opening goal by Villanova senior Carly Miller just 19 seconds into the contest, Boston College scored nine unanswered goals to take command of the non-conference women's lacrosse match played here Saturday afternoon. The Eagles posted a 14-8 triumph over the Wildcats (1-1 overall, 0-0 BIG EAST).

Miller got the Wildcats off on the right foot when she scored off a feed from sophomore Shawna Giust at 29:41. But nationally ranked Boston College responded less than a minute later with a goal by Hannah Alley and followed that with two goals off the stick of Moira Barry to take a 3-1 lead with 19:01 left in the first half.

The Eagles closed out the half on a 5-0 run, highlighted by a pair of goals from Brooke Blue, the last coming with 4:24 to go in the first half.

Boston College took an 8-1 lead into the break at halftime.

The Eagles extended their advantage to 9-1 on a Jill Rekart goal early in the second half before Villanova ended the stretch with a goal from sophomore Maria Bowman off a feed from BIG EAST Offensive Player of the Week Justine Donodeo. Boston College scored the next three goals in a five minute span to push its lead to 12-2 with just over 22 minutes left in the second half.

The Wildcats kept battling, though. Donodeo scored a goal off a pass from freshman Ali Judge. Villanova got another goal from Miller after a B.C. score made it 13-3, this one off a free position opportunity. Barry scored the final Eagles goal with over eight minutes to go to make it a 14-4 lead.

Villanova completed the scoring with four straight goals, including two off the stick of Donodeo. Freshman Ali Brandenburg and sophomore Anne Fallon also scored goals for the `Cats.

Donodeo ended the afternoon with three goals and a pair of assists. Miller added two goals and an assist.
